Preparation of annotation for 408 letters (1851-1853) comprising volumes 17-19 of the correspondence of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 19th-century British poets. (36 months)

The letters of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, scattered in over 300 public and private collections, represent one of the largest and most comprehensive bodies of literary and social commentary on the nineteenth century. The aim of The Brownings' Correspondence, projected to be 40 volumes, is to publish the complete text of all the poets' letters with full annotations, thereby making them accessible to a modern audience. This application requests three-year funding to edit volumes 17 through 19 of the edition, covering the years 1851-1853. During this period, the Brownings and their correspondents discuss a wide range of social, political and cultural subjects including Austrian occupation in Italy, the coup d'etat in France, American slavery, women's rights, and spiritualism. The letters in these volumes also serve to illuminate the work of both poets: RB's introductory essay to the Letters of Percy Bysshe Shelley (1852); EBB's Casa Guidi Windows (1851) and Poems (1853).
